  • Paint, varnish, spray polyurethane, mark a waterline, or rebed deck hardware
  • Choose a mainsail system, install a headsail furler or an inner forestay, assemble rigging terminals, or build a spinnaker or even a new aluminum mast
  • Pamper an Atomic 4 gas engine, replace a Cutless bearing, maintain your diesel, and know when it's time to repower
  • Install a new fuel or water tank, upgrade to wheel steering, replace a propeller or deck hardware, or install seacocks
